ron claiborne wants to weigh in. he's in ohio, he's in columbus right now and you are there at the secretary of state's office and we know every single vote, every polling place is being watched tonight, ron. >> reporter: they're being watched very closely and, diane, 1.6, 1.8 million voters actually voted early either by absentee ballots or in person going to early voting stations. those will be the first votes counted. we start to get those in about 20, maybe 30 minutes from now. we will get an indication, for example, if there is a high turnout in those early voting areas around cleveland. that would be very favorable to president obama. and meanwhile, as you were saying, the auto bailout has figured prominently in this state something like one in eight jobs are involved in the auto industry and the obama campaign was able to really bludgeon mitt romney with that issue in recent days in a way magnifying romney's attack line saying that those jeeps would be built in china. the response was so overwhelming by the obama administration and auto executives it may hav

of the columbus dispatch obama wins with ohio. it was ohio that put the president over the top in the 270 electoral votes needed to win the whitehouse. and dean reynolds has been spending a lot of time in ohio for us covering that state because we knew it would very likely be the state to tip the balance and sure enough it was. dean. >> scott you know the thing that we noticed here when we got here, it seems like five, six weeks ago is the size of the obama footprint in this state. i mean it just dwarfs gone romney -- governor romney's efforts. there was 130 field offices and a lot of them have been here for four years. there were countless staffers, paid as well as volunteers versus about 40 offices for the governor. and he had to share those with the republican national committee regularly. i saw those ads that you folks were talking about earlier this evening, and they were devastating going right after governor romney's record at bain capital. i also kept hearing about the bailout from workers in ohio who were very high on that because one out of every eight jobs in ohio is connected

take that remarkable statement with the interview that speaker boehner gave to politico in columbus, ohio, yesterday. we have both republican leaders going in ready to fight. they're not, they don't seem to be chastened at all. >> right. and go back and watch "60 minutes" from this past sunday where they had this segment -- it wasn't the best ever -- but there was an interesting interview with harry reid and membership mcconnell simultaneously told. i think the first interview they've done perhaps ever, and you watch the body language, and you understand why we have a broken senate, why we have a broken congress. the two of them just basically point the finger at the other, show no willingness to compromise, don't feel like they have to compromise because they feel they're winning the ideological war, and they feel that their opponent -- they vilify their opponent saying that they're the ones who are making the miscalculation, they're the ones that are making congress an inhospitable place as far as getting things done. >> and yet there's some evidence that there eventually will be

able to go to school. i think mitt romney lost a lot of people in columbus because of that 47%. >> i am merely of said. i cannot believe that we, again, that mr. obama into the white house. i am a nurse and it has been here to find a job. a home health -- patients are not being seen big medicare cuts. >> i think it is a very dark day. i am shocked and dismayed how this man could have won again. i really feel that the election, so many people are out of work. i am an executive in this community who lost his job and was able to find a job. there are no jobs. the woman who called before, the situation with the obama, with our troops and our embassy, i think he handled it improperly and i would not be surprised before he gets ready to give his inaugural speech that there might not be an impeachment trial that starts. i think the country is more divided today than ever before. i think he was able to win because so many people have moved to the bottom side of the scale because there is no work in this country and it is not going to get better. >> i want to address why i believe mitt romney di

and stretched his energy policy. they're democrats, but he thinks he can pick up the votes. columbus, cleveland, those are high numbers for the president. it's too close to call there my campaign sources say. >> jan, thank you. the president has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be reelected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign and nancy cortis is covering the obama campaign. you spent time in ohio as well. >> reporter: i sure did, scott. it was a perfect example. we were out five days from election day. the president spends the entire day barn storming ohio, heads to the white house to sleep and comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just how much he favored this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country this campaign season. 26 of them, more than a quarter, were in one state, ohio and he wasn't just in the big cities. he went to suburbs and small towns. the main reason the obama campaign felt their chances were better in ohio than say virginia or florida

of columbus about 30 minutes. >> what does turn out like today, or did you vote early? >> i voted today. i voted today at a very small community church. matter of fact, i was by myself. someone was walking out as i walked in. >> as a republican, what is your reaction to the results? >> i am unhappy. i am the republican unicorn that is going to tell you why, romney it lost. i have to agree with the lady that spoke about the republicans going so far right. i want to reclaim the republicans back, where they used to be. it started with president bush, the second bush, and the patriot act. it basically destroyed civil rights. i went crazy at that point. i just thought, what is going on with this party? i have always been a republican. now, they are going so far to the right it is ridiculous. they used to be the party of fiscal responsibility. they used to be the party of government staying out of your personal business, out of your home. now, that are wanting to tell people who they can marry, and all this other stuff. it is ridiculous. john boehner needs to take back the republican party. star
